Leamington Things to Do

  • Point Pelee National Park

    Point Pelee was made a national park in 1918 at the urging of birders and hunters. Commercial fishing continued in the park until 1969. Point Pelee was the only Canadian national park to allow hunting until duck hunting was ended in 1989. This site was named "Pointe-Pelée" or "bare point" by French explorers because the eastern side was rocky and...

    Point Pelee National Park extends from the mainland of Essex County in southwestern Ontario, Canada. It consists of a peninsula of land, mainly of marsh and woodland habitats, that tapers to a sharp point as it extends into Lake Erie. Middle Island, also part of Point Pelee National Park, was acquired in 2000 and is located just north of the...

  • Other Wineries

    It seems Essex County is becoming the new Niagara. Since 2005, a number of new wineries have established themselves in the region. We only had the opportunity to visit two new ones, but here's a list of all the wineries in the region to date (2006):1. D'Angelo Estate Winery2. Sanson Estate Winery 3. Erie Shore Vineyard4. Colio Estate Wines Inc.5....

  • Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary

    Jack Miner established his bird sanctuary in 1904. The hunter-turned-naturalist decided it was time to stop the killing and take action for wildlife. He brought home seven Canada geese to live in his pond with the hopes that others would soon join them. At first, it was a huge failure, but then in 1908 a wonderful thing happened: eleven wild Canada...

  • Mastronardi Estate Winery

    A new addition to the growing Southwestern Ontario wine region, Mastronardi Estate Winery sits on 100 acres of vineyards previously owned by Colio Estate Wines Inc. The winery is owned by a young, presumably Italian couple. We had our wine tasting with the wife, and she was very informative about the wines and the wine making process. Complimentary...

  • Pelee Island Winery

    Pelee Island Winery was established in 1979 and is the biggest winery in the region (Essex County). The main headquarters of Pelee Island Winery are in Kingsville, the town neighbouring Leamington.

    Leamington has a pretty harbour lined with cottages and a couple restaurants. The harbourfront walkway is a nice place to go for a walk, enjoy the scenery, watch the boats and waterbirds, fishing, boating, etc. There are benches available to rest your feet. Parking is free at the adjacent lot. There are also public washrooms available. Special...

  • Fish&Chips 'to die for'

    Well... it has been a long time since Tim has had a really good fish and chip dinner. He still remembers the last one which was in Greenwich, England. He was so disappointed, and he was so looking forward for that maybe too much. And to think he got a great, no, the best fish and chip dinner right here in Canada! The chips were golden brown and...

  • Nice Location

    The Waterfront Restaurant serves pub food, as well as some greek-style dishes, sandwiches, pastas, etc., basically a general menu. The food is decent, but what is best about this restaurant is the nice location on the harbour, especially in the summer when the patio gets busy. I'd recommend it more as a place to sit back with a cold drink and good...

  • Family Restaurant

    The food was not very tasty, sort of generic. All of us ordered pretty basic dishes like spaghetti, which is hard to mess up! If you're not too picky when it comes to food, then maybe it will do the trick, but none of us (four people) were particularly satisfied with our meal.Check out the website for other reviews of this restaurant.

    Ferries depart from Leamington or Kingsville to Pelee Island depending on the time of year. Cars can be taken on board and are recommended because there is no public transportation available on Pelee Island. Reservations are required if you are taking your car and you must be at the dock an hour prior to departure. Walk-on passengers should be there 1/2 hour before, but reservations are not required.

    Two BIG Stop Signs! 1 more image

    by Babzz Written Oct 17, 2006

    I'm not sure how you'd miss these! We had some good laughs. In fact, I was so amused by the excessiveness of it that I had to take photos!! But in all seriousness, I assume that these were placed here as a serious safety precaution (or perhaps as a result of some bad accidents). A lot of the country roads around town are two-way stops on 80km roads, so make sure the way is clear before crossing the intersection :)
